Fortnite Festival is finally hitting the shelves this weekend, and expectations are running higher than ever. Here’s everything you should know about this newly launched Fortnite mode, including its full setlist and an exclusive A-list headliner.

Game Details

Epic Games describes Fortnite Festival as “a new music game where players can play in a band with friends or perform solo on stage with hit music by their favorite artists.” Fortnite previously joined forces with Travis Scott and Eminem for music-inspired experiences, and launching the Festival mode seemed like a logical next step.


The Weeknd will serve as the headliner of the Fortnite Festival when this new mode launches on December 9. He’ll perform four songs to get us excited about this game, including his smash hits “Blinding Lights,” “The Hills,” “Save Your Tears”, and “Take My Breath”.


As for the rest of the setlist, Fortnite Festival will feature an epic mix of beloved classics and modern hits. Billie Eilish, Lady Gaga, Fall Out Boy, Kendrick Lamar, and Olivia Rodrigo are some of the artists to make the cut, but the setlist offers a great mix of different styles and genres. Approximately 30 songs are included in the current rotation, but it’s safe to expect that the list will expand over time.
